Following recent comments from Floyd Mayweather, who claimed he’s tried making a boxing bout with Conor McGregor a reality, UFC President Dana White has made his own offer for the proposed bout.

The decorated and retired boxer recently told ESPN that he tried signing a fight with McGregor to no avail. Mayweather also said that he’d be willing to pay McGregor $15 million for the bout, plus proceeds from the pay-per-view. Mayweather also said, however, that his team would be the “A side”, due to his storied boxing career.

Recently White appeared on “The Herd”, and he was asked about the proposed Mayweather  – McGregor bout. White denied that Mayweather has tried signing the fight. The UFC President also took issue with Mayweather’s argument that he should receive the most revenue from the proposed bout. Then, White proceeded to offer Mayweather and McGregor $25 million each for the fight, plus a share of the pay-per-view.
